Ceramic fiber insulation

work in a foundryCeramic fibre is a lightweight insulating product. It has low thermal mass which means that it does not retain heat, low thermal conductivity and is an extremely effective insulation material. Its high thermal shock resistance make it suitable for applications where traditional refractories cannot be used. So called Refractory Ceramic Fibre is made from high purity alumino-silicate materials. Ceramic fiber is produced by melting these products in an electric arc furnace, a stream is poured and cooled to form the fibre strands from which the ceramic fibre products are produced. Ceramic fibre is available in many forms and densities.

  • Ceramic Fibre Blanket
  • Ceramic Fibre Modules

  • Textiles rope and braid

Examples of applications

With a temperature range of 1260oC for standard and 1400oC for Hot Face and 1430oC for Zirconia blanket most applications can be easily accommodated.

Applications for these materials include:
  • Furnace linings, Hot Face, intermediate and back up
  • Flexible pipe insulation
  • Expansion joints
  • Seals
  • Fire protection
  • Kiln Linings
  • Packing for high temperatures
